The Armed Services Blood Bank Center has scheduled two blood drives on Okinawa during the next week, both on Oct. 12.

Drives will be held at the Kadena Air Base USO and on Camp Hansen in Building 2814. Both drives will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

All published blood drives are open to servicemembers, Department of Defense civilians and family members 17 and older.

While mission requirements may require cancelling or rescheduling a blood drive, donors may confirm a specific drive as it draws near by visiting, clicking on “info for patients and community,” then “blood donor program” or by calling the Armed Services Blood Bank Center at DSN 643-7737.

For more information or to schedule a blood drive for your command contact C. Tracy Parmer, donor recruiter, at DSN 643-7710 or 643-7737, or via e-mail at:
